FWA Maternity Ward December Report

In the months of October, November and December 2018, we had finally done a lot of progress with our building project. Now we are done with the first and main part of our project. The work was not easy as all the material have become very expansive. This was caused by the devaluation of our Burundian currency. The pictures below show the progress of the construction from October 2018 to December 2018.

See pictures for progress in the construction.

When we were working on the slab of our building, because of water problems, we were forced to rent a tanker truck to bring us water.

The funds that we used were as follows:

  • Vancouver Island Monthly Meeting: $21,530.69
  • FWA members contribution: $1,685
  • GlobalGiving: $559.5

We are very thankful for the work we have already done. Thanks a lot to everyone who has donated for this great work to happen. The next step is to raise at least $20,000 for this specific project by December 2019. We still expect to raise $10,000 through GlobalGiving. If we can get at least $3000 in two months, the very  next step is to enclose the ground floor with bricks after we have removed the planks and poles.
